Today, I’m continuing to share a bit of the opening scene of book 2 in my Highland Talents series, which I’m calling Highland Seer. This is Donal MacNabb’s book. He’s known for being stubborn, skeptical, practical, occasionally outspoken, and fiercely loyal. When Donal finally meets his match, it’s a contest to see which of his flaws will destroy any chance at happiness they might have. How does she win the love and loyalty he gives so rarely?
Enjoy this week’s Six Sentence Sunday!
The racket grew louder as they approached, deepening into men’s hoarse shouts pierced by the terrified cries of – children? Donal spurred his mount forward. The rest of his men kept pace, stealth forgotten as they rode hard through the trees.
When they reached the source of the noise, Donal took in the scene with a glance. Horsemen charged in a loose circle around three wagons loaded with wooden casks and manned by boys and old men. The normally placid highland cattle hitched to the wagons tossed their heads, their horns threatening to disembowel any horse that came too close.
